Railway vehicle compressors

Cylinder head units and reed valves for railway vehicle compressors

  • High reliability and long service life attributed to proven valve design
  • Optimized valve design for oil-free operation
  • Optimum compressor performance with low noise emissions through a simulation-supported valve development

Over the years, with further developments and innovations HOERBIGER has made a major contribution to increasing the reliability of valves and cylinder head systems. Compressor manufacturers around the world rely on our customized solutions and recognize us as an excellent partner that always delivers on its performance promise.

We develop and produce valve systems for the following sectors: all types of railway vehicles: long distance, local and freight trains in addition to electric locomotives, diesel locomotives, subways and streetcars. For different operating conditions and compressor types: lubricated and oil-free, single- or two-stage compressors with or without energy-saving control.
